The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have agreed to strengthen existing partnership between the two agencies in various areas of operations especially in the fight against drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking.

They made the commitment in Abuja Thursday when the Commandant-General of the NSCDC, Ahmed Abubakar Audi, visited the Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Mohamed Buba Marwa.

Audi said he visited to tap from Marwa’s knowledge and experience of Marwa in transforming NDLEA within a short time seek synergy and collaboration between the two agencies.

Marwa commended Audi for bringing to bear, his experience and intellectual capacity on the work of the NSCDC.

“We would like to bring the problem of drug abuse under control as quickly as possible because of its effects on public health and national security. As such, we’ll like to call for renewed partnership with the Civil Defence so that together we can bring criminalities under control in communities and the country at large.

“With your visible physical presence in the grassroots, we’ll work with you in our drug demand and drug supply control efforts,” Marwa said.
